Up in Canada, Emerica’s Wild In The Streets took place in Winnipeg this year on Go Skateboarding Day. Down south, Detroit was the official #WITS stop. Check the video evidence featuring Bryan Herman, Andrew Reynolds, Jerry Hsu, Brandon Westgate, Ed Templeton, Collin Provost, Figgy, Trevor Colden, Leo Romero and the entire Dirty D skate population:
Stay tuned for the online version x video of our Detroit/Windsor Border Cities feature from Issue 119.
“The Canadian Emerica team (Bradley Sheppard, Alexis Lacroix, Skylar Kehr, Andrew Wenckstern, Spencer Corbett, Dan “Alien” Nelson, Jamie Tancowny) were in Winnipeg this year to celebrate Go Skate Day, their way, with Wild In The Streets.
The meeting spot was the Forks skatepark at 2pm, which is when 250-plus kids took to the downtown streets hitting spots – ones that normally can’t be skated. But with a mob of kids you can skate anything…
The police were around and reminding us that this was being tolerated. The group were able to hit 4 of the 5 spots Emerica had planned out, but eventually we were forced back to the Forks to finish the day.”
^ The mob’s departure from the massive Forks park.
^ The Nutty Club ledge in the Exchange District was a good place to start. Jared Arnason, 50-50.
^ This crusty out-ledge has been serving the Winnipeg skate scene for a long time. Jamie Mospanchuk, front tail frontside heel out.
^ Yet another classic ‘Peg spot. Bust factor was not a factor at the City Hall gap, which is not for those who are faint hearted or roll slow.
^ Post-game satisfaction. Check out Timebomb Trading’s full Winnipeg photo set right here. All photos: Judah Oakes.

June 21st (the official first day of summer, the longest day of the year, and most importantly Go Skateboarding Day) is on the horizon. This year, Emerica x Timebomb Trading are putting on their annual Canadian Wild In The Streets initiative in Winnipeg. Keep tabs on the FB event page for details, and our site will provide exclusive photos.
While Go Skate Day takes place all over the world on June 21st, Emerica’s official Wild In The Streets barge will go down in Detroit, MI this year. Emerica has teamed up with the artist-run non-profit, Power House Productions, to benefit their worthwhile project: the Ride It Sculpture Park.
Take a look back at our Dysfunctional In Detroit feature and video from Issue 116 right here, and stay tuned from more from the Motor City in an upcoming issue.
